Unlike a conventional hinge, a Continuous Geared Aluminum hinge has no pin. Also, it is not like a "piano" hinge either, which has 50% of each knuckle cut away, and depends on a thin wire to hold each leaf together.
A Continuous Geared Aluminum hinge consists of two full-height, paired and geared leafs. Each geared leaf rotates evenly from top to bottom, riding on superior Delrin Teflon bearings. The geared leafs and bearings are held together by a full length channel cap. This assembly retains the smooth, clean lines of the door and frame, while easily supporting heavy doors.
